GTX 760 VS GTX 950 for 1080p gaming

Hey guys. I need a graphics card for 1080p gaming that'll be good for at least the next 2 to 3 years. I'm on a budget and need to decide between the GTX 760 and the new GTX 950. Please help. Thanks!

I'd go with the GTX 950.

They're very close in performance. I'd go 950 - more efficient, unless you can get the 760 for less than $100

That can't be predicted, and either way to get close to that you need to spend a lot more. Unless you mean to run games (regardless of settings), in which case I'd go for the 950.

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

They perform about the same, so I would say 950.

il would go with the gtx 950 also since it supports DX 12.1 which improves performance (with low cpu's )

Kepler supports DX12 which may not include every feature of it, but definitely does include low CPU overhead.

Yes but for any card that supports DX12, low CPU overhead is there. That's a function of DX12 and just the way the API works.

If you can spend the extra money, I'd go with the 960 or something from AMD. I don't trust cut down chips from NVIDIA anymore ever since the 970's 3.5GB issue. From what I can see though in benchmarks it seems fine in performance regardless should it have an underlying 1.5GB issue that hasn't been discovered.

System: Intel Core i3 3240 @ 3.4GHz, EVGA GTX 960 SSC 2GB ACX 2.0, 8GB 1600MHz DDR3 Kingston HyperX RAM, ASRock B75M-DGS R2.0 Motherboard, Corsair CX430 W Power Supply
